Does this recipe for ginger cookies look right?

Thanks4Food | Dec 15, 2012 07:49 PM

I met a woman at a weekend workshop who made these ginger cookies and told me the recipe from memory. Making them tonight, they seem to be very low in flour and am wondering if I should add more. She did say she chills the dough and then forms small balls.


2 sticks butter, softened
1.5 cups light brown sugar
1 lg egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup candied ginger

Then add dry ingredients, already mixed in a small bowl:

1.5 cups flour
3/4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. ground ginger

Bake at 350 till light brown.

Sound right to you? (I didn't have enough ginger, so can't bake tonight, but have everything mixed and ready.)
